Cranberry Rum Sauce

My favorite food around this time of year is cranberry sauce.  I love this sauce over Greek yogurt, in my oatmeal, over warm pancakes or just on its own slightly heated up.  It is slightly tart and the rum adds a great warming flavor.  If you prefer your cranberry sauce sweet feel free to add […]

I love the deep flavor and gorgeous color.   It’s so pretty and would be the perfect gift to […]



Baked Butternut Squash Mini Donuts

Mini donuts are such a fun treat for the kiddos (of all ages).  I got this mini donut pan a few years ago and have loved it so much.  Baked donuts are not only healthier but so much tastier, in my opinion.  The varieties you can come up with are truly endless. These butternut squash donuts […]



Cherry Limeade Smoothie

Unless you live under a rock, you know all about Sonics infamous cherry limeade.  A few years ago when Sonic came to town that’s all I heard about.  I couldn’t go to work, the grocery store, the gas station without over hearing someone gushing about how great their cherry limeade is. Being the rebel I […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This chocolate chip banana bread it quite delicious.  I used ½ white flour and ½ whole wheat pastry flour to create the classic banana bread texture.  I’m not a huge fan of using all whole wheat flour in my baked goods.  Yeah it is the healthier way to go but it makes the results heavy […]



Mini Blueberry Muffins

I love grab and go breakfast options.  Small little treats that go perfectly with your morning coffee that you can throw in your bag before rushing out the door. These mini muffins are perfectly bite-sized.  What I love most about them is that they are not overly sweet.  Ava and I thought they were perfect […]



Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Saturday morning pancakes are a ritual Ava and I have created.  She has come to expect them hot and ready when she wakes up on Saturday morning.  Grant it she wakes up at 6 am and usually has to drag me out of bed.   Most Saturdays, I’m exhausted and whip together her pancakes while half […]
